The AMG-enhanced GLC43 should check all the boxes if you're looking for a sporty crossover with a nice bit of grunt. The car is powered by a bi-turbo 3.0L V6 that produces 362-hp and 382 lb-ft of torque. This gets the GLC43 from 0-60 in 4.8 seconds. This is matched with an AMG-tweaked 9G-TRONIC 9-speed transmission that features shorter shift times and AMG Performance 4MATIC gives you the versatility of all-wheel-drive.

You'll also find a nice array of exterior enhancements that includes a chrome-tipped diamond-block radiator grille, high-gloss black louvers, silver chrome air intakes, and a silver chrome front splitter. There's also 20-inch AMG wheels with a high-gloss black finish and several wheel options up to 21". At the back AMG finished the tailpipes and rear bumper trim in silver chrome and there's also revised lighting and a lip spoiler to complete the high-performance styling. 

The interior features black leather with red contrast stitching and both the passenger and driver have sport seating standard. A selection of infotainment options are available that include everything from Garmin-powered navigation with live traffic alerts and an optional 13-speaker, 590-watt Burmester surround sound system for a hi-fi experience on the go. The GLC43 will hit US showrooms early next year.
